Although many people choose to share their interests in a casual setting, stylist Lauren Coyle shares hers professionally. At Identity Salon, she specializes in reshaping clients' hair with custom cuts and blowouts, or giving strands a sun-kissed sheen with coloring and foil highlights. And yet Lauren doesn't just transform existing hair—she also applies Hotheads hair extensions, which are made from real human hair.
The walls at Crown Creations Hair Design are always watching you??sort of. Large framed photographs of ravishing women hang all about the butter-yellow salon; with eyes forward and faces framed by bountiful flowing locks. This gallery is an appropriate evocation of owner Marielle O'Neill's gift of sculpting to hair into sleek layers. As natural light pours through the space?s window, tresses regain their youthful bounce with deep-conditioning treatments and bold color highlights. Clients also may request a decorative updo, or restore smoothness to brows and lips with a personalized waxing session.
On LaRouge Salon’s website, stylist Jodi Hoover explains her fascination with hair extensions: “You can sit down in a chair feeling one way and in a matter of a couple hours feel like an entire new woman.” Her Euro So.Cap. certification allows her to perform this service in-house, in which she adds instant length and volume to tresses. Jodi also treats her clients to modern cuts and helps eliminate frizz with Brazilian blowout treatments.
The professional team of stylists at Escape Salon and Spa tames unruly tresses with the plant-derived Brazilian Blowout Zero. The treatment requires no formaldehyde, relying instead upon plant-based KeraSafe to introduce essential amino acids to the hair. Tress tamers gently scrub scalps with a clarifying shampoo, washing away hair-product residue, oils, and climbing princes, and then apply the formula. The protein dives deep into the cuticle, with stylists maneuvering blow-dryers and flatirons to straighten out manes. Results can last up to 12 weeks.
Spa In The City’s beauty professionals do just about everything there is to do in the spa and salon arena. In addition to traditional services (among them, haircuts, waxes, and massages), the specialists ramp up the volume and length of lashes with extensions. Applied one by one, the faux threads nestle alongside natural lashes to create a dynamic yet airy effect. Cosmeticians further enhance facial features with custom-blended mineral foundation, powder, or blush. After devising the perfect blend of colors to match your skin, the specialists keep the recipe on file so that it can be reformulated when you run out or your body double gets sunburned. Spa In The City's personnel also staff an adjoining boutique full of beauty products, gifts, and jewelry.
The details are what matters at Enrapture Salon & Spa, which is why complimentary beverages, such as spiced tea and cucumber water, are offered to clients at the start of their appointment. Stylists then use a keen eye for detail—from studying face shapes to determining eye colors using a piece of broken-off rainbow—to transform manes with Organic Color Care System color, 100% human hair extensions, and thermal hair straightening techniques. Finally, a complimentary hand massage and Jane Iredale makeup application are included with every salon service.
